Description

From Barry Denenberg, the award-winning author of Ali: An American Champion, comes an engaging new novel that narrates the oral history of Japanese incarceration during World War II, from the perspective of the young people affected. It's difficult to believe it happened here, in the Land of the Free: After the bombing of Pearl Harbor in 1941, the United States government imprisoned more than one hundred thousand Japanese-American citizens living on the Pacific Coast. This oral history of those affected by incarceration, including the stories of many children and young people, illuminates the frightening reality of this dark period in American history. Now more than ever, these voices will resonate with readers confronted with questions on immigration and citizenship, and what it means to be an American.

Author Biography

Barry Denenberg is the author of many critically acclaimed biographies and nonfiction works. He has written on a wide range of people including Nelson Mandela, Charles Lindbergh, Jackie Robinson and Elvis Presley. His innovative books on Abraham Lincoln (Lincoln Shot), Muhammad Ali (Ali: An American Champion), and on the sinking of the Titanic (Titanic Sinks!), combine narrative with illustration and photography in a unique format which reviewers have called "history at its best" (Kirkus Reviews, starred review). Denenberg is also known for his many memorable books in the Dear America series-most notably When Will This Cruel War Be Over?: The Civil War Diary of Emma Simpson, a title that won the Jefferson Cup. Denenberg divides his time between New York City and Westchester County.
